Hearing His Words "Needful"

"One thing is (absolutely) needful"—indispensable; and this is the one thing that almost everyone in every house, in Christ’s day and ever since, agrees to consider not quite urgent, a thing that may be left alone a bit, that at least need not be a matter of great prominence or pressing arrangement. This was the one thing that transfixed Mary’s attention as "she sat at Jesus’ feet and heard his words," and it is the one thing that is supreme with the same class in every age and country—the good part that will not be taken away when all human things will vanish like a dream. This class will always be considered extreme by those who do not see with open eyes as they see; but time will justify the former.
